It's like Beyond Valor all over again.

I've been thinking longingly about Napoleon's Triumph for a couple of years now, ever since I saw it on a table at MidCon, laid out in all its spectacular miniaturesy glory. But every time I see it in the games shop I pick it up and think "Ouch, £45. And after all, do I really need any more games?"

So recently I've been reading the reviews and listening to the podcasts and getting to the "must have" stage, so today I look on the Leisure Games website and - oh bother! - it's out of print.

I've waited too long, AGAIN!

(Like what's-his-name the elf who lingered too long in Middle Earth.)

But wait, The Orc's Nest still have one. I'll be down there tomorrow......

Iain, you're on!

Infinity Games - I've never used them. Do they package properly or stuff it in a jiffy bag (like some I've used)?

I use Infinity games for probably 90% of my purchases. Packaging is excellent and postage is free. 100% satisfied

This is a follow up to 'Bonaparte at Marengo', which I own but have never played, and seems to be universally recognised as an even better game. I remember lending you the rulebook for BaM last year - I found it to be a very badly written rulebook for a game which uses remarkably different mechanics to all other wargames. I would love to give it a go some time.

I have used Infinity Games several times and have always found them to be excellent.
